Burnley are set to make another bid for Republic of Ireland international Jeff Hendrick, according to Sky Sports, and are preparing to include fringe players James Tarkowski and Tendayi Darikwa on loan in negotiations.

The Derby man, who has 25 caps to his name, has been linked with an exit all summer, and Dyche will hoping his clash plus player offer finally convinces the Rams to sell, after previous bids have been rejected, according to Sky.

The Clarets are clearly eager to add Hendrick to their squad ahead of their return to the Premier League.

The Republic of Ireland international has never played in the Premier League, but has five years of extensive Championship football since breaking into the Derby first team in 2011. He has been a consistent performer for the Rams who have repeatedly been one of the division's better sides but failing to clinch promotion.

A convincing factor for Dyche, who is looking to replace Joey Barton after the one time England man moved to Rangers, were Hendrick's performances in the European Championships, when the 24-year-old impressed as part of a hardworking side who came up against high profile opposition.

It is evidence that the Irishman can comfortably make the step up in quality without it impacting his own game too much, and will be vital for a Burnley side who will be determined to earn consecutive seasons in the top flight for the first time since the 1970s.

Former Brentford defender Tarkowski only joined the Clarets in January, but struggled for first team action at Turf Moor, and would be a good addition for Derby in central defence.

Wideman Darikwa also could be set to depart Burnley on loan despite only arriving last summer, though he did make 24 appearances as the club won the Championship last season.
